We are saddened and frightened as an organization to watch the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan rapidly unfold. We are concerned for American citizens, their families, and US allies trapped abroad. When the Taliban last held power from 1996-2001, women were denied employment, educational opportunities, and fundamental human rights. Escalating violence has put progress on hold and millions of lives at risk, especially those of women and children.

With the situation deteriorating on the ground, we’ve chosen to support a locally-based charity, Women for Afghan Women, which has provided vital, community-centered programming to women, children, and families throughout Afghanistan as well as to NYC’s immigrant and refugee communities since 2001.

Let’s do all that we can to help support and provide safe shelter, resources, and aid to those in severe need.
